The Book of Trees

edition:Paperback
More Info
Excerpt

We stopped by a simple stone monument.
   "What does it say?"
   Aviva paused to read the Hebrew. "It commemorates the soldiers who died while taking the hill in the 1948 War of Independence. There was probably a village here."
   "What do you mean?"
   "Probably some Arab village."
   I turned to Aviva. "They planted trees over an Arab village?"
   "Sure."
   "Why would they do that?"
   Aviva shrugged. "To make the land beautiful, I guess."
   I stared at her. Then I rubbed my temples. Aviva seemed like a stranger. My head buzzed. I wanted to say, This is not a forest. Instead I said, "What happened to the people who used to live here?"

Gravity

Excerpt

"All through dinner a silent rage courses through me. Judaism says I am an abomination, yet God and His commandments are supposed to be good. Mrs. Lowenstein says I can change, but I've tried and it didn't work. Neshama says God is just an idea made up by stupid men who say women can't love other women. What is God anyway? Some big guy in the sky? The creator? Creator of what? I know dinosaur bones are older than the Torah."
